TOC complete for ZIPPERED FLESH 2

"The Little Things" will be just one of 22 horrifying body modification stories in ZIPPERED FLESH 2.

“The Little Things” will be just one of 22 horrifying body modification stories in ZIPPERED FLESH 2.

Editor Weldon Burge has accepted Lisa Mannetti’s story, “The Hunger Artist,” as the last addition for ZIPPERED FLESH 2. The anthology will include 22 stories, including my own, “The Little Things” and will be well over 300 pages of body modification horror.

In addition to “The Hunger Artist” and “The Little Things,” ZIPPERED FLESH 2 will also feature Michael Bailey’s “Primal Tongue.” While I haven’t read the story yet, rumor has it that Bailey was given permission to use sections of FAHRENHEIT 451 by the estate of Ray Bradbury for use in the story, and that it’s multi-lingual. Should be a challenge, but in a good way. And I would expect nothing less from the editor of CHIRAL MAD. The man knows how to push an envelope.
